This is a HOBART, 30 kW, 400-cycle,
gasoline GENERATOR. It is being brought online to power the (IFC) Integrated
Fire Control Nike radar vans. These generators were used primarily to furnish
emergency power during an actual alert and during Operational Readiness
evaluations. During normal daily operation commercial power converters
powered the equipment.
They converted 60-cycle power to 400-cycle power.
